What does the app do?

This app is designed for people dealing with eating disorders. It's main feature is the mood and meal logs. When users enter the program, they are directed to “check in” and rate their daily mood from a customizable list. Then, they can log a meal in a detailed log (e.g., time, food consumed, location, mood, and problematic eating behaviors within the meal context). Once a meal is logged, it can be exported as a PDF version via email. Users are rewarded with an inspirational message for logging a meal (e.g., every human being is the author of his own health and disease). The program also offers tips related to the recovery process and effort, divided into various themes (e.g., body image, journal activities, mindfulness, relationship).
